The Beer N Biceps Story

Beer n Biceps was founded by Matt Smith in 2011 under the imaginative name of personaltrainingbymatt.com. For six years it plodded along pretty much unnoticed. Then in June 2017, after a drunken night at the Duck in the Pond pub (Harrow), the Beer n Biceps podcast was born.

Matt was joined by Todd Davies, and together they managed 21 podcasts on beer, fitness, and nutrition. After that, Matt moved to Nottingham while Todd remained in Watford. Meaning that shared podcasts were unlikely. The podcast still runs to this day, with Todd popping in for the occasional guest episode.

The Beer N Biceps blog focuses on beer, fitness, and nutrition. Matt uses his expertise in fitness and nutrition to discuss how to build muscle, burn fat, and lead a healthy life.

He also discusses how to drink beer in a sensible and healthy way. Promoting a different approach to beer drinking, focusing on quality rather than quantity. Expanding your tastes, and pairing beer with food (or pouring beer directly into food).

Beer N Biceps spends a lot of time exploring the beer-drinking cultures of different countries. Checking out the history of beer, and looking to the future. Beer is one of the first inventions of mankind, and it has played a role in building civilizations, starting wars, and starting families for thousands of years.
